Default Migrating Swans

A long distance highly cropped shot of a group of swans heading North as the start of there migration. I know heading North sounds counterproductive but they follow the Pacific Coast north to Prince William Sound then continue following the coast south and a great deal of them end up in California. At least that is what the people tell that I report band infor to. Half of this group are immatures and this will be there first long distance test.

Real nice shot. I really like the cloud coming from underneath. To bad on the wing position of some them causing shadows.
Well done.

Robert
Thank you for the comments. The sun did cause some shadow issues.

Hi Bob, nice photo, for once I dont necessarily agree with my good friend Robert, the underwing shaddow in this instance doesnt spoil the shot, because the leading bird and others dont have any shadow. Whatever, well done
